Esteemed guests

On Monday, after sailing, the team was honoured with a visit from the President of the Generalitat Valenciana, Francisco Camps, and the Mayoress of Valencia, Rita Barberá.

The pair were on hand to officially welcome BMW ORACLE Racing to Valencia ahead of the America's Cup Match and to see the trimaran and wing sail up close for the first time.

Below, Mr Camps and Mayoress Barberá are welcomed to the boatyard facility by team CEO Russell Coutts (NZL) and GGYC spokesman and head of external affairs Tom Ehman (USA).
